Star Trek New Voyages (2011-)

It’s hokey. So was the original Star Trek really. It’s Star Trek New Voyages. It’s a fan fiction organization that lives on what you’ll donate to them on a Home Depot card. This show wouldn’t further the franchise commercially, but most Star Trek fan fiction is so bad that it hurts. This production is the brain child of professional Elvis impersonator, James Cawley.
